1. Sony WF-1000XM4 (Overall Best)

Sony WF-1000XM4

The WF-1000XM4 deliver one of the most vivid, nuanced, and well-balanced performances of any Bluetooth earbuds we've heard. Vocals exude elegance and sophistication, while the bass notes are tight and textured. Their musical style captivates you and makes you grateful for the eight hours of battery life, which is best in class in this category.

Wearing the Sonys is also comfy. The updated earpieces have touch-sensitive controls and a new, noise-isolating ear tip design. You may get headphones that successfully block out the noise by combining this with Sony's Integrated Processor V1's superb noise cancellation.

The WF-1000XM4 includes IPX4 water resistance, Sony's smart Headphones Connect software for iOS and Android, and unique features like Quick Attention and Speak-To-Chat that both let you hold a conversation without taking out the earbuds. Look no further if you want the top in-ear wireless headphones available right now.

2. Panasonic RZ-S500W

Panasonic RZ-S500W

Not many people instantly think of Panasonic when they think of the greatest earbuds. But maybe it ought to be. The RZ-S500W, the company's first product on the market, offers incredible performance for the price.

The detailed specifications include noise-cancelling technology, an Ambient Mode, twin microphones for voice calls, and a battery life of 19.5 hours (6.5hrs from the buds and 13hrs from the charging case). 70 minutes of playback may be obtained with a 15-minute USB-C quick charge. You can easily manage your music and choose between noise-cancelling settings thanks to the responsive and clear touch controls on each bud.

Additionally, you receive earbuds in five sizes to aid in fit. We found this to be a little hit or miss, so if mixing sizes may result in a more secure fit, we'd absolutely experiment with it.

Excellent sound quality and noise cancellation are both present. There is a tonne of texture throughout the frequencies and plenty of mobility in the bottom end. At this pricing point, the music sounds clear and is very refined, which is to be commended. In conclusion, these Panasonic wireless earbuds are excellent value.

3. Sony WF-C500 (Sony's Best Budget)

Sony WF-C500

Consider Sony's WF-C500 wireless earphones as a basic variation of the WF-1000XM4 that can be found higher up on this page. Without taking too many short cuts, they convey a lot of what makes those wireless earphones successful.

They have an IPX4 rating, making them suitable for running and other sports, and you can connect to Android devices using "quick pair" and Windows 10 PCs using "swift pair."

The audio is delivered in a seamless and melodious package, has a great deal of midrange detail, and is well-balanced.

The earbuds' 10 hour battery life should be sufficient for most users, and the case adds another 10 hours. The Sony WF-C500 should be on your shortlist if you're seeking for the best Bluetooth earphones but don't want to spend a fortune.

4. Apple Airpods 2

Apple Airpods 2

The in-ear AirPods from Apple have always been serviceable but average wireless earphones. Over the years, they've received quite a few four-star evaluations. But Apple has created a pair of wireless earbuds that actually works with the AirPods Pro 2.

How? You gain more features, stronger noise cancellation, longer battery life, and most crucially, far better sound quality. They are also equally priced to the original AirPods Pro, which is advantageous.

The modified design seems significantly less obtrusive than some in-ears, and fit is excellent. On-bud volume controls, which Apple has now implemented, also improve the user experience.The noise-cancelling is excellent, and Adaptive Transparency effectively muffles loud noises while allowing in background noise. And how about the sound? They really are skilled performers, with weight, detail, and a healthy dosage of dynamic nuance.

5. Bose QuietComfort Earbuds ii

Bose QC ii

Welcome to the What Hi-Fi? Awards 2022's "Best wireless earbuds under £300." These high-end Bluetooth in-ears sound incredible and raise the bar for wireless earbuds at this price point, as the award's name says.

The Earbuds II have several features and are smaller and lighter than the original QC Earbuds (which you can buy in a few places below). The addition of Bluetooth 5.3 is a major plus, and the Bose app gives you several customizable presets to change the level of noise cancellation offered.

The Bose are the best in the business when it comes to noise cancellation. The result is really astounding since they can automatically change the amount of ANC available to prevent your music from being overpowered by particularly loud noises. The audio is neutral, well-balanced, and rich with minute detail.

It's unfortunate that Bluetooth multipoint, wireless charging, and high-quality wireless audio codecs like LDAC are not supported. But given that these sophisticated blooms exude such elegance, we don't believe this to be the end of the world.
